Earthworm scoops partypoker Big Game for $238,297 as Sunday grind continues to attract huge fields

It was another busy day for the highstakes online grinders, big-name stars such as Kristen Bicknell and partypokers newest recruit Jordan Drummond in the money, but the wins going elsewhere…

Guarantees were still being broken across the board, although the huge number of tournaments and series on offer seemed to show slightly lower numbers than previous weekends.

That didn’t stop partypoker’s Big Game from breaking the $1million prizepool barrier, with 232 entries and a top prize of almost $¼million.

Kristen 'Krissyb24' Bicknell made it to 12th place for a $20,802 cash, the same as her teammate Jordan 'The Undecided' Drummond.

Drummond took the Big Game title less than a month after joining the red diamond’s Team Online roster, and this 11th place wasn’t too bad either.

Another highstakes reg, PayAndPlay was on the same payout, while the first 6-figure cash went to tldvechicknbn in 3rd spot, worth $123,297.

Heads-up was between Xingyun8 and earthworm, the latter taking it down to add to his Powerfest win earlier this year, this time a $238,297 cash to go with the trophy.

There was 4-card action on the menu as well, the $1050 buy-in PLO Phased Final attracting 211 entries and promising $50k+ to the winner.

Noname69 and Paquiitoo are never far from the deep end and yesterday was no exception, though having to settle for final table appearances and $5,782 apiece.

NOLIMITHOLDEM appeared to be in the wrong game, but it proved fruitful enough, 3rd place and $23,655 to take back to his two-card version.

Heads-up saw Gettomasa emerge victorious over Leper Gnome, taking $52,371 while his opponent pocketed $33,643.

Over at Americas CardRoom there was a small but hotly contested SHR taking place, 16 players vying for top spot in the $2650 buy-in NLHE tournament.

With only two being paid, the heads-up duo took all the money, Coccobatto losing out on the title but bagging $14k while his vanquisher FilipeLF took top spot and $26k.

The Sunday Special PLO boasted a $35k guarantee but the final prizepool was over $50k, with a five-figure sum up top.
AlexisTexas85 grabbed 3rd place and $5,166, which left PL0wned and pavianstinkt heads-up for the win, the latter having to settle for the 2nd place cash of $7,056 with PL0wned taking $10,584 to go with the title.

PokerStars is still in SCOOP territory and we’ll be bringing you the biggest of the wins in the huge 2-day events tomorrow, but yesterday also saw a sweet 6-figure score in the Mini Sunday Cooldown.

The $530 buy-in PKO Turbo attracted 1607 entries producing a prizepool of over $800,000 and Bulgaria’s Dimitar 'trionojnika' Yosifov trampled his way to victory, his Bounties more than the rest of the final table combined.

After his defeat of Canada’s Hustlaaaaaa heads-up, Yosifov had bagged $52,421 from his headhunting exploits, exceeding his first place prize of $52,208 from the regular money.

1 Dimitar trionojnika Yosifov $52,421 $52,208 $104,629
2 Hustlaaaaaa $8,694 $52,207 $60,901
3 Erä_Koira $11,000 $30,976 $41,976
4 Alex.Z5518 $1,203 $22,081 $23,284

6 Old brock $2,889 $11,220 $14,109

8 Matheusdad $5,519 $5,701 $11,220
9 Lassiole $4,121 $4,152 $8,273

China were well-represented at the SCOOP tables, with dugui18 overcoming a field of more than 9200 to take $63,147 in the $109 PKO, with his compatriot miniross182 scooping the $1050 buy-in version for $108,768.
